We’re delighted to share what some of our customers are saying…
Customers across a variety of industries and company sizes share that Pure simplifies how they deploy, provision, operate, and manage their data and storage solutions.
“Do you like your admins to sleep well at night? Move to Pure and they will. In one hour, I can take an admin with little to no flash storage experience and have them provisioning storage. Not days of training but a one-hour conversation and a whiteboard.”
Storage Administrator in Finance Industry
“Revolutionary Storage Provider. Having utilized two other storage providers in the past 10 years, Pure Storage has simplified everything we know about storage and given us performance unheard of, prior.”
Senior Systems Engineer in Unnamed Industry
“Excellent product. I never worry about storage speed and reliability. Got my life back!”
CIO in Services Industry
The storage industry has conditioned customers to expect a certain level of reliability and consolidation–many were previously skeptics but turned into advocates upon experiencing Pure with its data reduction, compression and deduplication capabilities.
“We met Pure Storage when we decided to move over our old super famous enterprise storage. The technology was really interesting and they proved all the features thanks to the try & buy offering model. We decided to adopt to consolidate all the datacenter workload: SAP on AIX, AS/400, VMware 600 VMs and physical SQL cluster.”
CIO in Transportation Industry
“Pure is easy to use, user friendly, and support is excellent. We used to have different storage system and I used to spend hours figuring out problem/solutions. Since we’ve gotten Pure, we reduced size from 2 racks of space to 2U space. It is very easy to configure deploy LUNS to hosts. It used to take me 30 minutes to configure and discover hosts on other storage product. Now to create LUN and deploy to hosts it is a very quick 2 step process.”

Evergreen: Lower Cost of Ownership
Many customers reflect on Pure delivering innovations in software and hardware without any disruption, downtime, or data migrations, plus saving 30 to 50+ percent with dramatically lower TCO.
“Evergreen is the best concept in storage. You do not lose your initial investment in the product.”
Senior Systems Engineer in Retail Industry
A Government CIO endorses the Evergreen program guarantee.
“Evergreen maintenance option guarantees that we will be able to stay up to date with new technology every three years. The investment will continue to pay off.”
CIO in Government Industry
Our customers have placed Pure at the top 1 percent of B2B companies in customer satisfaction and loyalty with a Net Promoter score (NPS) of 86.6, increasing its NPS four years in a row. The NPS demonstrates exceptional customer experience and it is 3 times the average score of 24 across all industries.
“Best Support in the industry, Pure sets a new bar for everyone else to achieve!”
CIO in Education Industry
“Fast, and easy to use with fantastic support. Code updates have been flawless, with minimal red tape to get in the way. Simply outstanding service in every aspect.”

Getting the Full picture: Consider Both Customer and Analyst Viewpoints
Pure achieved leadership across the full spectrum of evaluations that Gartner publishes – from customers, with the Customers Choice designation, and separately from analysts, in the 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Solid State Arrays, and the 2018 Critical Capabilities for Solid State Arrays report.
In the Magic Quadrant for Solid State Arrays, Pure was named a leader for 5 straight years. In the most recent report, Pure was positioned furthest right along the completeness of vision axis, and highest on the ability to execute axis.
While the Magic Quadrant shows strength of vendors in a given market, Gartner’s 2018 Critical Capabilities for Solid-State Arrays (SSA) looks at specific products. In that report, Pure scored highest in three use cases of the five use cases analyzed, including Online Transaction Processing, Server Virtualization, and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure.
